, the bully pulpit itself. has any other president used it much to his advantage than president obama? >> i think it's true he is doing it and with all of the uniforms behind him he is making the point. the big point was about his third paragraph when he said we are not able to send an aircraft carrier into the persian gulf. imagine that situation if we face a crisis over there and the sequester and the failure and continuing resolution to be continued or any of the gamesmanship on capitol hill. they weren't able to defend our country over there. i think he really laid it down to these guys. this is an advantage he has. as you said, the bully pulpit, it's an old term by teddy roosevelt and means the president can get out there and make a point. it's a great pulpit. the republicans don't have such a pulpit. they can put up someone like boehner or someone like rubio and it's never an even match because the public will not pay that kind of attention and is no one else to speak like this. obama knows he has an advantage. he can speak for the administration. there is no one in congress that can
